About Brent Marshall:
Marshall grew up in a mobile home park in a small northern B.C. town, and now he’s one of Kelowna’s most devoted philanthropists. In between, he’s put himself through engineering school, been a firefighter, worked with special needs children, sold cars, owned more than 20 companies, driven on famous race tracks, and raised nearly $5 million for local charities.
While Marshall has made his mark on a menagerie of industries—auto, aviation, real estate, film production, construction, and health, to name a few—it is his philanthropic work benefitting children and the community that is perhaps his most fulfilling endeavor. A devastating motor vehicle accident just before completing his degree left Brent in rehabilitation for nearly two years. But he found something to fill all he had left behind—a profoundly enriching experience working with special needs children.
Marshall's determination to have all of his companies donate to charity has allowed him to construct a Children’s Wing on the UNBC hospital, an outdoor patio for a pediatric ward, a Cancer Lodge Family Room, an outdoor all-wheels park for kids, and large donations to over 30 other charities. Marshall has orchestrated the donation of nearly $5 million dollars to charities these past 15 years, earning him the title of "The Face of Philanthropy”.
